CTV Challenge #4 "It's A Guy Thing"  January 27, 28, 29th

 make a masculine card for any occasion
Mary is giving a set of stamps to the winner

I know most of struggle with masculine cards 
but with Mary's fabulous "It's A Guy Thing" stamp set
no problem

here is what I came up with
these cut files are from
Svg Cuts
Cliff's Clubhouse 

I use the debossed side of a circle using tiny mosaics
really think it looks like a golf ball
all the papers are from my overflowing bucket of scraps. 
some inking, twine a button 
sent this to my big brother his birthday was January 22

and once I start with these stamps and SVG files I couldn't stop myself
make this one too
base of this is Papertrey Ink ripe avocado
pattern paper is from K&Company
some inking a little twine and a gift card.

When I saw Mary's stamps just knew they were perfect
for making all those cards of the men in my life.
Thanks Mary
